||It was a glorious day when our incipient democracy and liberties were saved from the Catholic threat. When you consider the terrible history of the Catholics in the UK, who have variously
- Revolted (twice!), with the Jacobite rebellions of 1715 and 1745, when they tried to put the clock back and restore a tyrannical Catholic Monarchy, only to be stopped by the vigilance of Hanoverian supporters throughout the Kingdom.
- Terrorised, not just Guy Falkes, but the IRA, the Real IRA, and many other paramilitaries, with their campaigns of bloodlusty bombings throughout the UK.
- Incited revolutions, Charles I and his horrible papist wife even tried to ally with the Irish and bring an Irish army to England to fight against us! Thank God for the puritans, Cromwell and the National Covenant in Scotland. Early Communist movements like the Chartists were closely associated with Catholicism.
- Interfered with the sovereignty of a woman's body, by attacking abortion, contraception, and such.
- Sympathised with enemies of the State, such as the French, Spanish, and so on, throughout the years. it was the Catholics who wanted Queen Elizabeth I, the greatest ruler the world has ever seen, to marry that dago Philip I. It was the Catholics who wanted the German Bonny Prince Charlie to be installed King over the English House of Hanover. It was the Catholics who sympathised with Napoleon Bonaparte, and who assasinated Spencer Percival.
So Guy Falkes Day is truly to be celebrated, it is the day we, the people of Britain, stood up and defended our ancient liberties as enshrined in the Magna Carta, and bullied out the Catholics with their bizarre notions of 'divine right of Kings' and 'supremacy of Rome'. To be sure, the Catholics like idols and icons, but treating the Monarch as the Son of God is blasphemy.
I, for one, just ♥ Guy Falkes day!
